The unit cell inspector window

show all pictures

All the properties of a unit cell are inspected via the inspector window. For example, it is possible to access to the motif or select the equivalent position generator of a unit cell from this inspector window.

The selection of the owner of a unit cell is also allowed from this inspector. Unit cells can be shared by many projects via a database, they can also be associated to a single project. For CaRIne 4.0, a unit cell shared via a database is called published or public, a unit cell owned by a project is called private.

As for all inspector windows, the unit cell inspector window provides an interactive, quick and easy way to build complexe graphic representations of crystals. All the modifications are applied automatically and in real time : all the results are shown instantaneously.
